DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (WAFB) - Officials said they have lifted the boil water advisory previously issued for some customers on LA 16 in Denham Springs.

Louisiana Department of Health officials said samples taken are free of coliform bacteria, and residents no longer need to boil their water.

Officials said they issued the advisory after a water main at the corner of Hickory Springs Boulevard and LA 16 was cut by Ward 2 Water District during repair work. Customers impacted included those residing on LA 16 between 32483 LA 16 and Parham Avenue and all side streets along that stretch, including Alexander Circle but it excludes Amite Church Road.

The water pressure dropped below LDH standards, according to officials.

Anyone with questions should contact Ward 2 Water District at 225-665-5188.
